Also racking up double figures in scoring was senior team captain, Tony Husary, with 14 points. The Warriors of Fremont Christian held on to win, 54-46.
A jam-packed gym played witness to Fremont Christian's homecoming game versus Redwood Christian on Thursday, Dec. 18. The crowd was given a treat, as the game was tight throughout.
Jeremiah Herzog scored 18 points for the Warriors, who are becoming accustom to getting close to 20 points per game from the sophomore stud; Jericho Herzog helped clean the glass for the Warriors, bringing down 15 boards, along with his six points; and Chase Spitzer scored all of his six points in the final quarter, as well as dishing out seven assists.
However, it was the senior captain, Husary, who led the team down the stretch, with 14 second-half points. In total, Husary had a game-high 21 points.
